Chippewa Falls city leaders approve riverfront development project

By  | 

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) The Chippewa Falls City Council has approved final plans for a new riverfront development project.

Since this past winter the city has been working with designers and the public to develop the plans.

Mayor Greg Hoffman says construction will start next spring, and overall the project will cost about $10 million.

Hoffman adds the money will be coming from public financing, so taxpayers won't be paying anything extra for the project.

The development will feature walking paths, access to the Chippewa River and even an outdoor amphitheater.

He says the entire project should take five years to complete.
